Terrible Storms Along tlie
WRECK AND RUIN EVERYWHERE
SIxty-Tliree Telegraph Llnea Torn Down
anil Fifty Western Union Cable De
moliKliert In a Few Hour.
New York, August 24. The West
Indian cyclone which swept over this
part of the Atlantic coast last night
and this morndng on its way to the
New England coast, left its mark over
the. whole region around New York,
with a sweep of over 1,000 miles. The
rainfall, measuring 3.82 Inches during
twelve hours. Is the severest that has
ever been recorded by the local signal
fcervlee. Many ships are waiting out
side for the wind to subside. Through
the dragging of anchors of escaping
ships in the bay and North river, more
than fifty cables of the Western Union
Telegraph Company were torn and are
now lying useless on the bottom of
the river. The ravages of the stopm
are no less severe on land. Of the 75
wires to Washington, only 13 remain
standing. Railroad travel has been
seriouslyn interrupted. The summer
sorts have suffered reverely from the
high seas. In Brooklyn nearly every
street In the city was covered with de
bris from the trees. The police report
at least ten houses unroofed. Durnig
the height of the storm a policeman
found the body of a dead man lying
In a peddlar's wagon on Whipple
street. The wagon was filled with wa
ter and the man was floating around
In New Jersey the storm was most
severely felt and reports of damage
more or less serious are coming in.
This streets at Ellzabethport are part
ly tinder -water to a depth of two and
three feet and people are floating
about on rafts to get to work.
From the coast the news is particu
larly vague. The Burf was high during
the fury of the gales, and stories from
out at sea are yet (to be told.
Boston, Aug. 24. The , storm which
did such great damage in the vicinity
of New York last night, was felt in
all Its fury along the New England
coast as well. New" Haven, Hartford,
and other points in Connecticut 1 re
port it as the worst storm known in
many years with much minor dam
age to property and shipping. At New
Haven the damage t the harbor was
very great and the oyster beds suffered
especially. They are Ithought to be
banked completely in mud and may
prove a total loss, in which case- the
pecuniary damage will be very great,
amounting to many thousands of dol
lars. . As the day wre on the arriving
craft brought a story of the storm's
work at sea, and it proved a terrible
supplement to its ravages on land. The
fishing schooner Empire State, with a
crew of ten men and the Ella M. John
son with, a crew of eight, went down
last night off Manasquan on the Jer
sey coast, and all on board were lost.
These two vessels were in the com
pany with the Chocrus last night when
the stona struck them, and after beat
ing around all night in some of the
worst weather ever known off the
ecast, and with the loss of her captain
and fivst mate, the Chocrus reached
port today. The steamer Eggleston
Abbey from Cardiff put in for repairs
this afternoon, The captain reports
picking up George Upton of Portland,
Maine te day before yesterday, he be
ing the sole survivor of a crew of
six of the fishing schooner Mary Lizzie
which foundered August 21st. The .Ash
ing schooner John Feney, is in tonight
with two of her crew badly injured
from the terrific pounding they re
ceived. The captain reports seeing a
man clinging to wreckage some dis
tance off, but the storm was so furi
ous that they were unable to render
aFsistance. From Long Branch tonight
it is learned that it will be some time
before that resort recovers from the
effects of the storm. From the West
End Hotel to the Normandy, not a
single bathing house is left intact The
most of them were swept out to sea,
while others were washed right upon
the beach. Other resorts along the
coast suffered severely. Telegraphic
communication is cut off for the first
time since the great blizzard. It Is 1m
nossible yet to give anything like an
idea of the amount of damage done
along the coast in general.
T.ocknort. N. S- Aug. 24. The great
storm did much damage to shipping
In this vicinity, anumber of vessels
hpliie wrecked. This morning a cal
barge and towing vessel were wrecked
off Southampton, Lng Island. Up to
"timiirht. six men from wrecked vessels
were washed ashore out of a crew of
21 men on both vessels. Of the six that
came ashore three were beyond reeo-
cttatlon. The other 15 are undoubtedly
FOUR MEN DROWNED.
Asbury Park, N. J. Aug; 24. The
fishing schooner Mary F. Kelly of New
York, was wrecked this morning. Four
of her crew were drowned.
BRIDGET LEASE ONCE MORE.
Mount Gretna, Pa., Anug. 24. This
was recognized as a big day at the na
tional encampment of the Farmers'
Alliance. Conservative estimates place
the attendance for today, at over 30,
000, and this afternoon Mr. Mai;
E. Lease of Kansas, addressed an au
dience of 20,000. 't he said In part:
'The people of Kansas should never
give up fighting for human rights and
human liberty until we have Indeed
and in truth! a government of the peo
ple for the peopple, and by the people.
When a few men in Boston can cause
a suspension of twenty-one banks in a
day; when a United States Benator can
press the button and raise the price of
oil o per cent.; when the Jews of Ber
lin and Lombard treet can control
tlje money of Amerfoa, it Is time to
call a halt all along the line. Such
crimes have brought about a revolu
tion as much religious as political, Min
isters of the gospel should be Interest
ed in this revolution for the cauBe of
Jwms Christ and humanity. Ministers
who cannot dlscuBS politics of his par
ty in the pulpit had better put his dir.
ty, illthy politics aside; they are not
fit for the religion of Jesus Christ. The
time has come when politics must be
discussed from the pulpit. This is no
longer the land of the free and the
home of the brave, but the land of the
rivh and the home of the slave, and I
appeal to you to wake before the
chains of the money power are riveted
on your limbs. "
the then appealed to the people to
wake up and drive the money changers
from our temple of American Liberty,
even as Christ did 1800 years ago.
A SCATHING VERDICT.
Portland, Or., Aug. 24. The coroner's
jury today completed the Inquest over
the .remains of Lieutenant C E. Nel
son, of the Oregon National Guard,
whose death resulted from a wound
received last Saturday in a sham bat
tle. The verdict is as follows:
"We find that the sham battle was
crdered by General H. B. Compson,
commander of the brigade, who issued
the order for the battlei in the face of
protests made to him by most of the
commissioned officers under, his com
mand, who) believed and Btated to
General Compson that it was, in their
opinion, unwise and dangerous to
hold it. We find that the wound was
the result of criminal carelessness on
the part of the man who fired the shot.
We have failed to establish the Identity
of the man directly responsible for fir
ing the fatal shot."

Chicago. August 24. A fire which in
extent ct territory covered, is the larg
est known in this city for many years,
began in that portion known as South
Chicago about 5 o'clock this afternoon,
and, before it was brought under con
trol, hod destroyed over 200 Lulldlngs,
mostly frame residence structures oc
cupied by worklngmen, and rendered
many hundreds of people homeless.
The fire Btarted In a three-story brick
building at the corner of mat street
and Suporior avenue, occupied as a
residence by Wm. Gllles. It w&; cauB
ed by his daughter, who accidentally
upset a lamp while heating a curling
Iron. From there it grew rapidly in
volume, fanned by a galo from the
west, and the flames ate ' their way
over block after block of small frame
residences, until it reached ,th lake.
Within two hours after it had sturted
the' fire had consumed at least five
blocks of the great industrial section
of the city. . Residents of that portion
of the city were In a panic second only
to the one which characterized the
great lire. Before the few engines In
the district could make the slightest
Impression upon the flames, they
bounded eastward between 90 and slat
Btreets in the direction of the lake.
House after house went down. Hard
ly had these structures gone when the
fire was seen to be blazing in a dozen
places further east, the brands being
carried long distances' by the furhms
wind. The assistant marshal in charge
of that district, seeing that the utmost
efforts of the department were neces
sary if the greater part, of the tiiwn
was to be saved, notified the chief
fire marshal of the condition of affairs,
and two engines were Btarted down
from the main portion of the city as
s' on as possible. The largest fire boat,
Yoscmtte, was also hurriedly started
on a 13-mlle trip to the burning sec
tion. Before it had reached the har
bor above Chicago,' the fire had eaten
away five -blocks between Superior
uvenue and the lake, and the Yosomlte
turned its attention to the Immense
lumber yard? on the river front.' By
this time additional engines began to
pull in from the city and new danger
was encountered fr'm the coilns of
the wind, which started the fire tow
ard a new district. Between! the river
and the district, in which the flames
originated, extend Immense lumber
yards and lumber docks along the Cal
umet river and harbor. The burned
territory Is Just north of the business
centre of South Chicago, and was giv
en up almost exclusively to residences.
The fears of tha firemen were well
founded and before the dozens of en
gines had made much' headway, Ihe
immense docks of the Sunday Creek
Cal Co. were burning. Over a hun
dred thousand tons of coal were stored
in thesg bins, and the fire boat brought
to bear all Us powerful streams in the
endeavor to head off the flames. A
few minutes loiter, however, A. R.
Beck's lumber yards were seen to be
burning, and now the great battle of
the firemen with 'the flames began.
They had only by this time succeeded
In concentrating a number of engines
to begin an impression on the terri
fic fire. From this time on the forces
of the firemen gradually increased,
and the flames wera gradually brought
under control. By 2 o'clock the work
of nearly forty engines besides the
flreboats had told. Conservative esti
mates put the aggregate loss In the
residence district at $400,000. The Sun
day Creek Coal Company's loss will be
$250,000, and the Peck Lumber Com
MEETING OF THE DEPOSITORS.
Portland, Or., Aug. 24. About seven
